Breathe easier knowing your furry little friend is in good hands with Southwind Animal Hospital and Angel Care. As a full-service veterinary hospital, we specialize in everything from wellness exams to dental extractions to chemotherapy. Our animal hospital is in Memphis, Tennessee.

For New Arrivals

Puppies and kittens should be examined as soon as they arrive in their new home. Routine vaccinations and de-worming should be started around six weeks of age.


We routinely perform elective surgical procedures, such as spays and neuters, as well as non-elective procedures including soft tissue and neurosurgical cases.

Good pain management and the safety of your pet while under anesthesia are of utmost importance. We accomplish this goal via:

  • Preemptive Pain Management
  • Inhalation Anesthesia
  • Continuous Electronic Patient Monitoring
  • Intravenous Fluid Therapy
  • Sterile Surgical Technique
  • Up-to-Date Procedures


Dental care is a very important aspect of total health care for your pet. We offer complete dental prophylaxis, including cleaning and polishing teeth, fluoride treatment, and dental charting. In addition, we perform dental X-rays, routine extractions, and client education on home dental care.

Medical Services

Our hospital offers complete diagnostic and treatment services for all types of illnesses. We have an in-house laboratory for immediate blood and urine testing as well as an outside veterinary reference laboratory that picks up samples twice daily.

Diagnostic imaging using the latest digital radiography and digital ultrasound are also used to help determine the cause of your pet’s illness. Special studies including myelograms are routinely performed. We store your pet’s records electronically.

Angel Care


A diagnosis of cancer brings with it feelings of overwhelming fear, a sense of loss of control and most devastating of all the loss of hope. When we face the diagnosis of cancer in a beloved pet it is even more difficult, for we must make important and life changing decisions for creatures that rely totally on our own judgments for their well being. At Angel Care Cancer Clinic for Animals we recognize the importance of pets in our lives.

Our cancer care program is aimed at providing information, options for care and treatment of pets with cancer and support for the individuals and families that love them. Our goal is to utilize multiple approaches from traditional medical and surgical treatments to the use of nutritional therapies, supplements and complementary therapies like acupuncture to care for pets with cancer and defeat their disease.

These precious animals not only share our homes, our lives, our experiences, but they share our hearts. With their unconditional love and through a collaborative decision-making process together with their family, we hope to provide for them the quality and dignity of life which they deserve. Seeking the most appropriate care for our friends is the very least we can do as a response to their love and affection.
